Western medicine and Chinese medicine are different systems that have been influenced by the cultures and scientific traditions from which they developed. Each contains its own set of Kuhnian paradigms. Though possessing some superficial and structural similarities, these paradigms are in fact quite different. The longevity of traditional Chinese medicine as an ancient method of healing may be related to its compatibility with Eastern cultures that view the world in more holistic terms.
